Come to a public meeting about the huge protest planned for Land Forces 21: #DisruptLandForces
Land Forces 21 is a global arms expo on at Brisbane Convention Centre 1-3 June.
The protest will involve many different types of action, to include people of all abilities and backgrounds. Weapons companies are #MakingAKilling selling arms to military and police forces in order to terrorize us and people just like us. The Australian government subsidizes this killing trade with $270 billions of our money. These billions could fund the renewable energy transition, with billions still to spare.
Indigenous communities on the front lines of extractivism and militarism are the hardest hit by weapons exports. Colonial violence continues to dispossess first peoples in Australia, West Papua, Mindanao, Ecuador, Brazil, Nigeria, Kenya … while the arms dealers at Land Forces reap billions in profits.
#DisruptLandForces is a campaign coalition including anti-militarist, feminist, first nations, refugee, climate action and other community groups. Bring your people, bring your ideas, and together let’s bring peace and justice to Meanjin.
20th April 2020 – From 7.30pm
Friends Of The Earth – 312 Smith St Collingwood, VIC, Australia 3066
